Behind Closed Doors: Romeo and Juliet

This event has now passed.

PHOTOS

In this two-part film premiere we hear from the company who were rehearsing this summer’s production of Romeo and Juliet, to gain a personal insight into the play and their process. Director Ola Ince, and actors Alfred Enoch, Rebekah Murrell, Sargon Yelda, are joined by Professor Farah Karim-Cooper and psychotherapist Rachael Williams.

Through an honest conversation about race, beauty, femininity and mental health, they consider their roles as artists, and assess the impact of Shakespeare’s language on audiences today.

[It’s] a difficult world we live in where people do have internalised racism; where we have absorbed these dangerous ideas about what beauty is and what it can’t be

– Rebekah Murrell
